Ontario's premier is defending her Liberal government's update of the province's sexual education curriculum, which the newly elected leader of the Progressive Conservatives has said he'll scrap if he wins the spring election.

Wynne says approximately 4,000 parents were consulted along with child development professionals to ensure the material was age-appropriate.

Following a long, drawn-out process to count then review the more than 64,000 electronic ballots cast by party members, Ford narrowly edged out former MPP Christine Elliott, party officials said.

Wynne noted that she and Ford are very different, saying that voters will have a "stark" choice to make in the weeks ahead.

"Our membership has spoken and Doug Ford is our person and so I'm very excited", he says. "I think what we are putting forward as a platform is very, very different than what any of the Conservatives were putting forward, which is cutting and removing supports from people".

Wynne also downplayed suggestions her party, which has been trailing behind the Tories in the polls, will ratchet up attacks on Ford.

Ford says he spoke with Wynne this morning and stressed that she's a respected campaigner who he's not going to underestimate.

"We're going to reduce hydro rates, start attracting great-paying jobs and business", he told reporters on Monday. "I need to focus on what it is that people are saying to me in terms of what they need".
